      BrainstorySeasons / Bye ByeBig Crown Records

      'Seasons' showcase Brainstory’s sunny California soul and mixes in a touch of Roy Ayers east coast energy. The result is an infectious and uplifting tune penned at the beginning of quarantine with the hope of finding a bright-side in the trouble the world is facing. On the flip 'Bye Bye', is another stone cold B side ballad from the group that gave us 'Dead End'. The Darling Dears of Rialto have recorded what is sure to become another staple in sweet soul sets around the globe. But, in true Brainstory fashion this tune is uniquely theirs. Elements of psych, hip hop and jazz distance it from their soul-loving peers.

            Bedford-Stuyvesant Youth In Action Community CorporationTalent Hunt WinnersBig Crown Records

            Big Crown Records is proud to present the reissue of one of Brooklyns most sought after holy grails. Youth in Action, Inc. (YIA) was formed in 1963 when the Central Brooklyn Coordinating Council received a grant to develop a youth services program in the Bedford-Stuyvesant community. It was originally organised to identify and address the social problems that were leading to the high crime rate in Bed-Stuy. What there is no mention of in either the NMAAHCs collection of YIA materials nor in the Brooklyn Public Library's also extensive collection is this talent show and the record that came to be because of it. Local vocal groups chose tunes to cover from the era (1964 - 1968) ranging from The Rascals to The Intruders, from The O'Jays to Billy Stewart. All of these groups were backed by a local act called The Thrillers Band. The winners of the talent contest were then invited into the studio to record their versions which would be pressed up on this record and given away to local radio and TV stations. The hope of the whole thing was that this would help the young groups get discovered by producers and record labels and start their professional music careers. The intro to the album is Reverend Horace Tyler congratulating the winners

            What this album may lack in fidelity and production it more than makes up for in charm. The engineers at the recording sessions pump in pre recorded applause and screaming to give the it the feel of the day of the contest while the young groups sing their hearts out, clearly giving their all.

            "It is with great pleasure that we make this available to the public again. This is a truly rare record, and an awesome piece of New York History."

              Sunny & The SunlinersSmile Now, Cry LaterBig Crown Records

              Reissue of this classic, low-riding, brown-eyed soul album, 'Smile Now, Cry Later', from 1966 1966.

              As with most Sunny LPs, this is a mix of soulful originals - most notably, "Smile Now, Cry Later" and "Put Me In Jail" - and provocative, wide-ranging covers. Cases in point on the tributes side of this great album include the Sam & Dave shouter "Hold On I'm Comin'"; "Forever," made famous by both the Marvelettes and Marvin Gaye, and a song that Sunny performs to this day; and the '60s Louis Prima crooner special "Just A Gigolo."
